226 Homes Planned in the Wrigley Heights Neighborhood of Long Beach
City of Long Beach
Yesterday, the City of Long Beach announced it will prepare a draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for a proposed 226-home residential development in the Wrigley Heights neighborhood of Long Beach.
The Long Beach RiverPark Residential Development, proposed by Integral Communities, would be located on a 20-acre site that borders the Los Angeles River to the west, Interstate 405 to the north, Golden Avenue to the east, and Wardlow Road to the South. Previously, the project site housed a facility used to treat production water from oil wells in the City.
The Project would consist of 226 single-family detached and attached homes, and 11 affordable housing units. The residential product mix would consist of 74 single-family detached homes, 53 carriage townhomes, and 99 row townhouses. A total of 510 parking spaces for residents and visitors would be provided on site. Residential project amenities would include a clubhouse, a pool area and a recreation area located inside of the residential development.
About five acres of the site would be reserved for open space with recreational facilities and built-in trails. The open space area would include parcourse exercise equipment, a look-out point, an open turf area that can accommodate a youth soccer field, a butterfly garden, and sitewide landscaping.
The development would feature three different architectural styles of homes: Spanish Colonial, Italianate, and Santa Barbara. Each style would feature unique color schemes and decorative elements that complement each other. Each home would be two-to-three stories in height, with two-to-four bedrooms, and a single ground level two-car garage. The home sizes would range from approximately 1,500 square feet (SF) to 2,400 SF. Building materials would include concrete roof tile, stucco, decorative shutters, decorative wood brackets, terracotta tile, wrought iron railing, and more.
Project construction is expected to take about 44 months, with an estimated completion date of mid-2026 pending the City’s approval.
